The EAH5750 Formula measures only 18.3cm across, which is 5cm shorter than the HD 4850/4830, but it is still occupies two slots due to the large heatsink.

The card has HDMI, VGA, and DVI ports, but no DisplayPort so it doesn't fully support ATI's Eyefinity feature (limited to two displays).

The heatsink cover is attached with two screws on each side and houses a translucent 11 blade fan with a diameter of 7.4cm. As there is a single 6-pin PCI-E power connector, it's safe to assume the card requires more than the maximum 75W available through PCI Express.

Many of the heatsink's fins are ridged to increase the amount of surface area exposed to air. In theory this will make heat dissipation slightly more efficient.

The cooler is attached with four spring-loaded screws at the back. The mounting holes form a smaller square than the last two generation of Radeons. Third party cooling solutions that list support for the older HD 2600/2400 and GeForce 8600/8500 series may be compatible, but the GPU core is shifted further toward the rear compared to most cards so that may cause problems.

The PCB separated from the cooler.
